Nearly 200 People attended the ISC’s 2007 Lifetime Achievement Award Gala honoring William King, held in New York City on November 7, 2007. Speakers included Michael Hall, a sculptor, educator, collector, critic, and long-time friend of King, who shared personal stories about the artist and the beginnings of his career. The evening’s other speaker was David Cohen, editor and publisher of artcritical.com and art critic/contributing editor for the New York Sun. Cohen did a wonderful job of highlighting King’s contributions to the field of sculpture.

William King treated the audience to a brief but humorous acceptance speech, which began with “Four score and seven years ago…” and concluded with a heartfelt, “It doesn’t get any better than this, folks!”

During cocktails, attendees could view a slide show provided by King’s long-time gallery Terry Dintenfass Inc., illustrating the full range of his work. An original King sculpture, on loan from Andrew and Ann Dintenfass, was also exhibited for the occasion. Attendees left the gala with signed copies of William King’s most recent catalogue, The Early Work of William King, courtesy of the Alexandre Gallery, and table donors received a unique, limited edition piece of work created by the award recipient.

The Lifetime Achievement Award is the ISC’s biggest fundraiser, and we are grateful to all of the evening’s sponsors and attendees.
